From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s quiche gets extra heartiness from fingerling potatoes, combined with sweet sautéed onion and subtly peppery arugula. Whisking the eggs together with ricotta creates a rich, fluffy base for the filling. On the side, to highlight another delicious cheese, we’re making a refreshing salad with a dressing of garlic, olive oil, and creamy, tangy fromage blanc.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Heat a small pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the potatoes into rounds. Peel and small dice the onion. Peel and roughly chop the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Cut off and discard the root end of the romaine; roughly chop the leaves. Thinly slice the cucumber into rounds. Grate the Pecorino cheese on the large side of a box grater.

Cook, stirring occasionally, 7 to 9 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the arugula and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until wilted.
